I'm a School Teacher with a Special Needs Son. We Need Help Replacing Major Appliances Please!

My Story:

I am a single mother to my incredible 5-year-old son who has ADHD and autism. My son loves animals, especially learning about dinosaurs. We are working on getting him the services he needs; specifically, we're trying to get him in to ABA and occupational therapy, but the cost is fairly prohibitive for us. I am a public school teacher, and I teach 1st grade and absolutely love it, but we definitely live paycheck to paycheck, making it difficult to afford anything beyond our monthly bills.

Like I said, I make enough to pay our basic expenses, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck with little room for anything unexpected. Two of our kitchen appliances are over 10 years old and are constantly breaking down. Both our stove and dishwasher are completely broken, and it's making our lives at home very difficult. At this point, neither one of them are working at all, and they need to be replaced. I rely on these appliances to make meals for my son and to keep our dishes clean and sanitized, so not having them has caused a huge interruption in our lives. My son has had a hard time dealing with that, but right now, I don't have enough income to replace both of these appliances, so I'm seeking assistance.

Having a working stove and dishwasher is very important to our lives, and without either of those, it's very hard for me to both work and keep things stable at home for my son. I am working on picking up a position tutoring which will give me a chance to build an emergency savings fund so that we can deal with things like this more easily in the future. In the meantime, we would be very appreciative of the assistance that we receive with replacing these two major appliances. It will make mine and my son's lives so much easier, and it would set a wonderful example for my son as well. I would like for him to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others and use this as an inspiration to help others in turn.
